Discussion topics include:

  • How to identify humanizing stories and share successes through agency-specific campaigns
  • Content ideas for humanizing your agency that can be adapted across platforms
  • Integrating impactful community engagement into your agency’s DNA
  • Understanding the difference between a corporate account and a professional account and the benefits of each
